On last week’s Monday edition of the Chad Hasty Show on Lubbock radio station KFYO, 790 AM, state representative John Frullo joined guest host Paul R. Beane in studio to discuss the upcoming Texas legislative session.
Frullo said that there are a large number of issues the legislature needs to bring up in this session. Redistricting and the budget will be discusses again, as well as the Voting Rights Act. One issue that might not come up, but is still a concern for many people is the question of allowing concealed carry on campuses in Texas. Frullo is a big supporter of campus carry, and concealed carry in general. He said that people should be able to protect themselves no matter where they are.
“One of the things with concealed carry is the element of surprise. And I think that’s very important when you come to protect yourself. The main thing, as far as I’m concerned, is being able to protect yourself, your family and your property. I think that’s paramount to everything else. And Texas has some great laws as far as that goes.”
Frullo also discussed the manufacturing committee, of which he is a member, and how Texas can bring more manufacturing businesses to the state. He also took questions concerning the 10th Amendment, and whether or not Texas should be an open carry state. The 2013 Texas legislative session begins on January 8th.
